Take a look at this sub-titled video project that we’re currently working on. Credits go out Movieclips YouTube video.
The project already has some of the English subtitles added into it. Now we want to be able to change those English subtitles into another language that is suitable for our intended target market.
Adding the foreign language equivalent to these is quite simple and easy. To do so, we only need to apply the adage “Google is a friend” in doing so. We only have to get the equivalent translation of the phrases using the Google Translate tool that is easily accessible online.
The Google Translate interface is pretty much very easy to navigate. On the left-hand portion of the screen is the field where you will input the original text that you would like to be translated while the right-hand side allows you to choose which output language you would like to have.
Say I would like to get the Korean translation for the first subtitle in the project above. All we have to do is to copy and paste the English text, in this case, is “Vulko! Come on! He needs our help!” into Google Translate to do so. We select Korean on the right-hand panel and out comes the Korean translation of the said phrase! As quick as 1-2-3! We can then proceed to copy from Google Translate and paste it accordingly into the subtitle field in the Blurbiz app!
Following the same process, we’ve also changed the 2nd and 3rd subtitles into French and Arabic respectively.
Check out our output below!
This simple process, paired with the Blurbiz app, opens up your audience possibility to other languages! Adding in foreign language subtitles to your videos actually expands your reach and if you’re actually a business or influencer who uses videos, gifs, and memes, you’ve begun your entry into possible foreign markets engagements!.
